What is New

Since my last post on my birthday I have realized a few things.
1.) I don't know how to be the girl on fire I want to be, it really isn't my true nature.
2.) I do want to learn to be a girl on fire.

I recently joined a women's huddle at my church and I am in Love.  I don't think I have ever been in a women's group in my "church" life. excited for tomorrow nights meeting.

And my biggest news is I am a mommy  A chicken mommy  YEP. Chickens. It was my plan for awhile, but I didn't know if it would really come to fruition. I have 4 chicks in my bedroom closet as I type. SO WEIRD.  but we are enjoying them a bunch. They will be 2 weeks old tomorrow.

Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure

                       Here they are in their brooder (or.. rubbermaid tub), getting all warmed up.
  This one seems to be ab it older than the others, very definite wing feathers, and since this picture has    started growing tail feathers as well.

Maybe, I am back

It has been such a long, long time blog. I miss you. I have begun to make a blog book and it really made me miss the outlet. I was so wonderful to see where I was so many years ago, as a mom, as a wife, and a follower of Jesus. I think I have taken a few steps back in many areas of my life, and many steps forward as well. Today I am 32. Holy Moly. Today I was deep in thought as I shopped, I took a vacation day and I did what I wanted to do today=) I got my free birthday coffee at Caribou, I got some new underwear at Target (exciting, I know!), I went to World Market and used my $10 off $10 coupon and got a few things, and envied A LOT of things and also went to Kohls to use a store credit I had and a few other errands added in.

So anyway...Deep in thought. I prayed for new dreams in my heart, and I was specific that they be attainable! While I was envying everything at World Market, I felt like God highlighted the song Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys. To be a girl on fire, with flames in my eyes...as soon as I got in the car, that song came on! Crazy little things!

So as I walk along, with a lonely feeling in my heart as I work towards my dreams and being a better me, I will keep the flame alive.

Happy Birthday to me.
